Did you know free tampons and pads are available in our change rooms?

Now that we’re officially a certified Period Positive Workplace, we’re aiming to make your period easier for you in the workplace, with the aid of PIXII.

PIXII recognises that all basic hygiene needs should be cared for in the office, which is why they provide period products in the same way toilet paper and soap are provided. Here at the Darlings, you’ll find PIXII’s 100% organic cotton and plastic-free tampons and pads available to take when needed, showing our mission to support sustainability, diversity, inclusion, gender equality, and menstrual equity. The best part of all? This freebie offers an important social impact, too. Half of PIXII’s proceeds are donated in support of One Girl, a charity helping girls and young women in several African nations to access quality education and menstrual hygiene programs.

Talk about positive impacts all around!


The cool, clear air is punctuated by the vibrant yellow of the Acacia flower, blooming en masse. Clear, salty seas illuminate the abundant life in the coral reefs, while at altitude, snow gently dusts the land. The shorter days take on a new urgency, to forage and feed; fortifying for long, cold nights. These times are hard, but will eventually give way to a warmer dawn.


The intensity of heat gives way to a calmer time, and a fresh harvest of fruits, berries and roots emerge. Butterflies and birds flit between flowers, simultaneously drinking the nectar and delivering the pollen which will, in time, reignite a new cycle of emergence. This peaceful time is illuminated by beautiful, golden sunsets, slowly retracting as the long, cool nights draw in.


The hottest part of the year brings with it extremes. Scorched land cracks open in desperation for the deluge of rain that storms will eventually, inevitably bring. These storms churn the rivers and creeks, igniting feeding frenzies among hungry fish. This is a harsh, unsettled time. Many won’t survive. But with endings, come new beginnings.


Cold winds make way for warming air, while gentle rains cleanse and replenish the land. The buds of the Waratah redden, and before long they bloom, heavy with nectar. This long-awaited nourishment gives way to a cacophony of life; new, flourishing; and old, reawakening. All emerging to celebrate this time of plenty.
